The next financial collapse will resemble nothing in history. . . . Deciding upon the best course to follow will require comprehending a minefield of risks, while poised at a crossroads, pondering the death of the dollar. The U.S. dollar has been the global reserve currency since the end of World War II. If the dollar fails, the entire international monetary system will fail with it. But optimists have always said, in essence, that confidence in the dollar will never truly be shaken, no matter how high our national debt or how dysfunctional our government. In the last few years, however, the risks have become too big to ignore. While Washington is gridlocked, our biggest rivals—China, Russia, and the oil-producing nations of the Middle East—are doing everything possible to end U.S. monetary hegemony. The potential results: Financial warfare. Deflation. Hyperinflation. Market collapse. Chaos. James Rickards, the acclaimed author of Currency Wars, shows why money itself is now at risk and what we can all do to protect ourselves. He explains the power of converting unreliable investments into real wealth: gold, land, fine art, and other long-term stores of value.

Bullfighting has long been perceived as an antiquated, barbarous legacy from Spain's medieval past. In fact, many of that country's best poets, philosophers, and intellectuals have accepted the corrida as the embodiment of Spain's rejection of the modern world. In his brilliant new interpretation of bullfighting, Adrian Shubert maintains that this view is both the product of myth and a complete misunderstanding of the real roots of the contemporary bullfight. While references to a form of bullfighting date back to the Poem of the Cid (1040), the modern bullfight did not emerge until the early 18th century. And when it did emerge, it was far from being an archaic remnant of the past--it was a precursor of the 20th-century mass leisure industry. Indeed, before today's multimillion-dollar athletes with wide-spread commercial appeal, there was Francisco Romero, born in 1700, whose unique form of bullfighting netted him unprecedented fame and wealth, and Manuel Rodriguez Manolete, hailed as Spain's greatest matador by the New York Times after a fatal goring in 1947. The bullfight was replete with promoters, agents, journalists, and, of course, hugely-paid bullfighters who were exploited to promote wine, cigarettes, and other products. Shubert analyzes the business of the sport, and explores the bullfighters' world: their social and geographic origins, careers, and social status. Here also are surprising revelations about the sport, such as the presence of women bullfighters--and the larger gender issues that this provoked. From the political use of bullfighting in royal and imperial pageants to the nationalistic "great patriotic bullfights" of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, this is both a fascinating portrait of bullfighting and a vivid recreation of two centuries of Spanish history. Based on extensive research and engagingly written, Death and Money in the Afternoon vividly examines the evolution of Spanish culture and society through the prism of one of the West's first--and perhaps its most spectacular--spectator sports.

One of our nation’s leading financial advisors and the “Soul Authority on Money Management” reveals that while emotions can make financial decisions difficult, our emotional relationship with our money can also lead to not just greater wealth and financial security but amazing personal growth as well. As a financial advisor for the past twenty-five years, Susan McCarthy has firsthand knowledge of the surprising degree to which emotion can govern important financial transactions. But, time and again, she also has seen her clients emerge from challenging financial situations with a newfound sense of purpose in their lives. Says McCarthy: “The world of money is a world of emotion; a stage on which we play out all of our dramas. The lessons it has to teach us go well beyond the financial. They reach deep into our emotional and even our spiritual lives. Money is one of our greatest teachers.” According to McCarthy, for many of us the world of money reaches deep into our psyches, setting off fears and uncertainties we often don’t even know we harbor. In The Value of Money, she gives readers the tools they need to see past this tumultuous aspect of money to achieve not just greater wealth and financial security but personal insights as well. Presenting various “money types” she has observed in her work, McCarthy helps readers to determine what type (or combination of types) they are and how each typically responds to life’s most challenging financial events—taking financial responsibility for the care of a child or elderly parent, the death of a spouse, retirement— and how to turn around any self-defeating responses to the events. This wise book outlines a path not just to a richer future financially but spiritually as well.

Mit "The Meisterschaft System", einem für ihre Zwecke wenig geeigneten Deutsch-Sprachkurs, lernten Mark Twains Töchter Deutsch. Die teils absurden Lehrbuchsätze baute Twain in einen kurzen satirischen Dreiakter ein. Darin dürfen zwei junge amerikanische Ladies, die sich ein Jahr in Deutschland aufhalten, untereinander und mit ihren aus der Heimat angereisten Verehrern nur Deutsch sprechen. Zwerchfellerschütternd! "Welchen Hund haben Sie? Haben Sie den hübschen Hund des Kaufmanns,oder den hässlichen Hund der Urgroßmutter des Lehrlings des bogenbeinigen Zimmermanns?" Das kleine Stück erscheint hier samt Originaltext erstmals in deutscher Übersetzung.

'no one pitied him as he would have liked to be pitied' As Ivan Ilyich lies dying he begins to re-evaluate his life, searching for meaning that will make sense of his sufferings. In 'The Death of Ivan Ilyich' and the other works in this volume, Tolstoy conjures characters who, tested to the limit, reveal glorious and unexpected reserves of courage or baseness of a near inhuman kind. Two vivid parables and 'The Forged Coupon', a tale of criminality, explore class relations after the emancipation of the serfs in 1861 and the connection between an ethical life and worldly issues. In 'Master and Workman' Tolstoy creates one of his most gripping dramas about human relationships put to the test in an extreme situation. 'The Death of Ivan Ilyich' is an existential masterpiece, a biting satire that recounts with extraordinary power the final illness and death of a bourgeois lawyer. In his Introduction Andrew Kahn explores Tolstoy's moral concerns and the stylistic features of these late stories, sensitively translated by Nicolas Pasternak Slater. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
